Today I was overjoyed to hold a deformed little toddler at the Mother Teresa shelter. I kept shouting in her language, "Magayon ka talaga!" (You are so very beautiful!) She grabbed my hand so hard I thought she was going to squeeze it off and started laughing and screaming with glee. I turned around and the women who watch over them were weeping in a moment of beauty and grace. God makes us beautiful by the way he loves us. He does not love us because we are beautiful.
